During the day Shaun is the Managing Director of a Sydney based consulting practice that specialises in providing solution architecture and implementation guidance to large enterprises who are embarking on cloud computing projects.
Shaun’s passion for maximising points travel started in 2005 when a new job opportunity resulted in an interstate move and a substantial amount of travel on the “Golden Circle” when he soon realised that there are better ways to spend points than an economy flight to Brisbane on the weekend.
Once the sun goes down Shaun often pours a glass of wine and starts pondering over the best ways to maximise the use of his points balance – whether it be a impromptu trip to Auckland on the last Emirates A380 service from Sydney booked beforehand, or a few weeks in Europe flying Qantas and Emirates First Class – you can be certain that his points aren’t wasted on toasters.
As a technologist who spends most of his time with customers and only visits his office every couple of weeks, Shaun enjoys making technology work for him ranging from securely accessing resources on public untrusted networks to accessing Facebook in China.
